To equip the student with a broad background for a career in Mechanical Engineering, courses are provided in design, research and development, and maintenance and servicing relating to a wide variety of industries concerned with the generation, conversion, control and utilisation of power, the construction of mechanical devices, machines, mechanisms, instruments and electro-mechanical and thermo-fluids equipment. Graduates in mechanical engineering generally go into manufacturing, generation and transmission of power, transportation, refrigeration and air-conditioning, design, development and maintenance of machinery. In order to achieve the competence necessary to undertake such tasks, courses are provided in the basic disciplines of this field. The theory taught to the students is backed by practical work in the laboratories and by exercises in design.
